Former DNC interim chair Donna Brazile has made it clear that the Clintons played a major role in the demise of the Democrat Party in 2016. But she’s not done. After slamming Barack Obama’s ‘titanic’ ego, Brazile says 44 is at fault for her party losing nearly 1,000 legislative seats during his eight years in the Oval Office.

He was fantastic for the country. That’s another reason why I stepped up to become chair of the Democratic Party.
But, Judy, when you lose 900 legislative seats — I’m not blaming him for all 932 legislative seats, all 60 some-odd House and Senate seats, 11 gubernatorial races.
But this happened under his watch. It is the responsibility of the president, when he’s a Democrat, to help the Democratic Party.
President Obama, Michelle Obama, we all miss them in the White House. But we have to rebuild the Democratic Party. And that’s what I hope to do as well.

“As I saw it, these three titanic egos – Barack, Hillary and Debbie – had stripped the party to a shell for their own purposes,” she added.
And boom goes the dynamite…
